The Times Leader reports:
Recent means that life on Earth began over the relatively short time period suggested by a strictly literal reading of the Bible, "probably 7,000 to 10,000 years," though some Adventists think the planet itself could be billions of years old, explains Angel Rodriguez, director of the church's Biblical Research Institute. And six days means just that - "literal 24-hour days forming a week identical in time to what we now experience as a week," the Adventist decree says.
How exactly should this not qualify as the "lunatic fringe" of religion? What's next, insisting that the earth is the center of the universe and doesn't move?
